Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

Life is mundane

This past week was uneventful. I went into the office and had the pod to myself. The building is a ghost town. I wonder if it will stay that way. Rumour has it that the lockdown will be extended even though the Covid numbers are dropping. I’m on board with this. I love just walking down the hall to “go to work”. I am supposed to go in again this week. I hope the chef has something good on the menu.

The exercise is chugging along. This past Friday I woke up with a pain in my right hip. I tried rolling it last night on my foam roller and was pleasantly surprised that there was some relief. Will have to get more serious about stretching and rolling. What I really need is a good massage.

I have been watching way too many home renovations shows. By-product of being home in the day. I am gathering inspiration but still not feeling ready to pull the lever on my own renos. Too often there are issues with older homes so my apartment in a 40+ year old building is bound to have problems. I know I shouldn’t let fear stop me but it is for the moment.

Other than that this week has been quiet.

Hope all is well in your world.

10 classes done!

My first boot camp session is completed. My body is sore but I am feeling good. And I have signed up for the next session.

Since that doesn’t start until next week, I surprised myself by accompanying my team mate to the gym for a quick workout. We did not push ourselves too hard but managed to hit every muscle group. I rather enjoyed getting a light sweat on after work. This might become a regular thing.

All around life is good. I am in search of a part time job as I really think it’s time to do my kitchen renos and I would prefer to pay for it in cash. My BFF has inspired me. She went from being unemployed for over 1 year (YIKES!) to having a full time gig, part time gig AND a volunteer position while parenting her 10 year old bi-weekly. Next to her, I look like a slacker. There is no real reason I can’t work another job. My weekends are generally available.

So tomorrow I am going to drop off my resume at some stores in the neighbourhood. Hopefully someone will bite.
